Is the lack of content in the game due to the involvement of CBS?

Nope... It's due to lack of investment from Perfect World.

Why do people still make threads like this?

Everyone knows the only purpose these threads serve is so they can cherry pick questions and say 'See look. We asked the questions the players wanted us too'.

You're not fooling anyone anymore.

There are some great questions so far!

Keep them coming.

We will be compiling them early tomorrow for the interview later that day.

Good luck, hope it's a great interview! Look forward to seeing (well hearing) the finished product.

Then how about opening with the question I asked... This is not a request of arrogance. Several people expressed an interest in knowing the answer. They need to be put on the spot with the heavy questions.

Why does it take them so long to release one mission, working a full-time schedule and getting paid when a foundry author can turn out several five-star missions in less time, working only on their free time and not being paid a dime?

We will be happy to! Just so you know it will be rephrased. It is rather loaded as written and our goal is not to pick a fight but to get answers. Our rephrasing will be more to the point, like this;

"Can you help us understand why Cryptic requires a development cycle many times longer than foundry authors experience?"

Will that suffice?

You could even ask them to walk you through the process (in layman's terms at least) to compare and contrast the dev way of doing it to the foundry way. And even ask if anyone on the team has done much with the foundry on the side and if so, what they've thought of it, etc, etc.

It opens up a pretty fascinating dialog.

Which we, on the forums, will most likely nit pick to death later, but leave that work to us!
